  84. Re: Just bought a Massey GC2410 today can't wait til it arrives

    Congrats! I own a GC2400, and love its mobility. Oh, watch the tach cable. Rerouting it with fewer twists might extend the life. Also watch the air filter. They can get dirty.

    Snow Re: tips connecting MF2360 snowblower

    I installed the 2360 drive shaft yesterday, and it is much easier to install than the short mower deck without any special tools. As with any splined shaft the key is to get the splines aligned. ...

    Snow Re: tips connecting MF2360 snowblower

    IIRC, you push it forward to release the balls. I wonder if there is a method to retain it forward, a string or wire? Then release the retainer after the dollar is over the drive shaft. This...

    3-Point Hitch Re: FX24D 3-Point Arms Don't Lift

    Rob, I suspect you will find it is not the filters. If the FEL is working normally, then the flow is probably OK. Since they are plumbed in series, I think that the problem lies with the 3 Pt...

    3-Point Hitch Re: FX24D 3-Point Arms Don't Lift

    Rob, another thought is that the stop valve may be locked closed. Some dirt or a broken piece may be causing it not to open.

    Hi Rob, glad to see you are making steady progress. How you been?
    some thoughts:
    Did you disconnect the hydraulic lines from the FEL valve to the 3Pt?

    Did moving...

    Re: 85.3 hrs...and my first tach cable failure!

    Wacky, if you have it fixed under warranty, ask them to run the cable with fewer tight turns. It is my opinion, that is what's causing the failures.

    If they refuse, or if you do not like they way...
